Berry-Liciously Cold

Wintertime calls for layering up and keeping warm, but that doesn’t mean you have to look like a walking snuggie. That’s why when it’s brick out I take advantage of the turtleneck.

The turtleneck is the fool proof cold weather staple, you’ll almost always look put together in one. I own a variety of colors and about 5 black ones, but today I chose a deep berry that was lightweight and still covered all of my neck. Adding a matching lip was a fun change to my usual nude self. The skirt was right up my alley in length, long enough so that every inch of my body kept warm between neck and toes. Who says you can’t look sexy covered up?

The longer the coat the more dramatic the outfit, and that I’m okay with. I’m also debuting my longer locks, what do you think?

Hope everyone is staying warm here on the east coast. What are your go to outerwear choices?

Happy Friday!

I Believe I Can Fly

…in my Loeffler Randall boyfriend cape. The best thing about Fall is the different jackets, cardigans, and capes you can throw on over your outfit and make it a part of your outfit. Outerwear doesn’t have to be just a piece of clothing to protect you from the up and down weather, let it be a fashion statement too. Leave it on and show it off. 🙂

Happy Hump Day!

Talking Body

I am so in love with bodysuits right now! There are so many different styles to choose from; from tanks, turtlenecks, to low back cuts, and strapless. This one from The Reformation is laced up and budget-friendly. 🙂 Instead of black, I chose this cocoa color to compliment my skin tone. I never realized how easy going and comfortable bodysuits are. You don’t have to worry about constantly tucking in your shirt! The job’s done for you, lol. Today’s look was completed with a pencil skirt and knee high boots.

Will you be wearing bodysuits this ‘Summer is officially here’ weekend?

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Stepping Out

Last week I went for a different look, and this is what I came up with, a touch of boho chic. I stepped out of my comfort zone when I chose to wear these worn out (nothing wrong with that) suede boho type over the knee boots with my office uniform. Normally I would have gone with a nude pump, buttoned up the blazer and added a thin belt around the waist for a sleeker appearance (try it), instead I decided to loosen things up and let the blazer blow with the wind! To not look completely washed out, I pouted my lips with Nars Velvet Matte lip pencil in Cruella. I’m not a fan of wrinkles (who is really?) and normally I would have passed on posting this look, but in the real life office world, sitting in front of the computer is part of my job and you’re bound to get wrinkled the minute you sit down! A girl can’t stand all day in heels! Try to stay wrinkle free ladies and gentlemen!

I should really start taking these outfit photos before I get to work!

What do you think of this look? How was everyone’s weekend?
